Touchscreen Information
PanelMate Operation
The most basic job of a PanelMate unit is to replace the functions of hard-wired operator station devices such as pushbuttons, lamps and message displays. To replace these devices, the PanelMate unit supplies a "template". During operation, you can select a template to "arm" control buttons or numeric entry. Once a template has been selected or "armed", you can press any desired control button to take action. The touchscreen is designed for finger or gloved operation only, and does not require the same actuation force as a mechanical switch. A light touch will produce the same result as a heavy one. For more information refer to your PanelMate Online Operation User's Guide.
Pressing directly on the display will activate a template.

Touchscreen Calibration
You can calibrate your unit's touchscreen in both Offline and Run modes. To access the calibration screen when in Offline mode, select the Calibrate Touchscreen template on the Offline Mode Menu. To access the calibration in Run mode: 1) Select the Get Page control button from the default control buttons 2) Select the More control button 3) Select the Setup Page control button 4) Select the Calibrate Touchscreen template 5) Press the Execute control button Although the Offline and Run mode calibration screens are slightly different in appearance, they both use the same calibration process. To calibrate, press the eight boxes/crosshairs located around the screen edges. You may press them in any order, but all must be pressed to calibrate. Each box/crosshair will turn green when pressed. After the first pass, the boxes/crosshairs will change color to indicate the screen is ready for the second pass. Again, press all eight boxes/crosshairs around the screen edge. When you have pressed the last, the unit will return to normal operation.

Touchscreen Cleaning
A Cleaning Mode utility is provided to make touchscreen cleaning safe and easy. To access it: 1) Place the PanelMate unit in Run Mode 2) Select the Get Page control button 3) Select the More control button 4) Select the Setup Page control button 5) Select the Cleaning Mode template 6) Press the Execute control button After pressing the Execute button, the Cleaning Mode screen will appear. While this screen is displayed, the touchscreen will not respond to your random touch. After you have finished cleaning the touchscreen, you must return to normal operation by pressing the screen's numbered corners in sequential order: 1,2,3,4.
